Special Guest

PurpleStride Broward-Palm Beach 2019 welcomes Marc Hochman as our event emcee!

Marc Hochman is a graduate of the School of Communications at The University of Miami. Since graduating in 1991, he has worked at several radio stations in South Florida. For the past six years, Hochman has hosted afternoon drive on 560 WQAM along with former Miami Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder. "Hochman and Crowder" is one of South Florida's most listened to sports talk shows, and can be heard weekdays from 2pm-6pm.

Pancreatic cancer touched the Hochman family when his father, Lyle, was diagnosed with it in 2007. After a valiant battle against the disease, he succumbed in 2009. Hochman has been very vocal on the air about the disease, trying to use his platform to raise awareness and funds when possible.

Marc Hochman, along with his wife Laurie and son DJ, have lived in Boca Raton for over 15 years.
